Triumph at Carville documents the triumph over one of mankind's most feared diseases: leprosy. The film outlines the history of one of the most unusual communities in America, the 100-year-old national leprosarium in Louisiana known as "Carville." Crafted from contemporary interviews, old radio shows, movie news accounts, and other archival materials, the documentary takes viewers inside Carville and introduces them to patients, nuns, doctors and staff who lived and worked there.
James Krahenbuhl, Director of the National Hansen's Disease Program and the last director of the leprosarium, will be in attendance to give first-hand accounts of his experiences at Carville.
Free food will be served.
This event is part of Public Health Major Week, presented as part of Major Weeks programs which introduce students to a variety of majors.
